Two great movies via streaming services. The British magazine SIGHT AND SOUND ranked Jeanne Dielman as its number one movie, moving Vertigo to number two. They rank one-hundred films. Other changes added more movies from female and black directors and two animated movies.
What movie would you put number one?
I watched Jeanne Dielman. At three and a half hours, it was long. It detailed three days in the life of a mother and her son. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I thought it was fabulous. I don't mind watching people live their life though. Or read about it.
I also watched the new version of Lady Chatterley's Lover on Netflix, which I also loved.
Haven't seen that much sex in a movie in years. It was well-acted, directed and beautifully filmed.
